Halloween is over! Kind of! I still have to farm a bit more to get all those CEs!
The farming nodes are rather interesting but thankfully I’ve got enough to replicate the teams listed here.
As for challenge quest, it’s relatively easy. I didn’t bother to do much experiment but this one worked.
Nothing fancy, just letting Kagetora hit Zenobia until she’s down. With occasional Castoria and Hans NP as needed.
Meanwhile I didn’t notice the Apocrypha BD banner includes Jeanne Summer and Mordred Summer. Threw quite a bit for Jeanne Summer but got Fran Summer instead welp. I have some more SQ but I don’t think I’ll roll more. Or will I.
Also done with Saber Wars 2 here.
Challenge quest isn’t much really. It’s just having Mech Eli hit MHXX as much as possible. Now I think about it, it’s quite similar to the JP Halloween above.
As for Round Table quest, it’s a little bit lot more annoying with Tristan’s buff removal and Gareth’s piercing NP. The formation gimmick was also annoying especially quite a few of it requires command card and crit luck.
Somehow cleared it anyway thankfully. Sure is nice having Godjuna.
The event ends tomorrow and there next one for JP is hunting quest and… Christmas. Not sure how they’ll handle the long blank space until Christmas unless they do weird thing and start it mid November.
I didn’t have any SQ though so, yeah, that was expensive. Thankfully it only took over 240 rolls to get that NP3 above.
Other extras include NP4 Anastasia, NP4 Charlotte Corday, one extra Valkyrie (now NP3) and Circe (also NP3).
I have no more SQ or ticket so that’s it for me. Kind of. There are about 20 or so more daily SQ roll until it ends so that’ll be it.
Similarly for upcoming Kama banner, as I have no more SQ, it’ll be also just the daily SQ.
As for the event itself, it’ll be a while until full farming can start as the higher level nodes are still locked. Nothing particularly difficult which is rather expected for a summer event.
Oh, I also only have few apples anyway.
Jaguar! I made a vaguely possibly working team and it did. There isn’t much in term of strategy especially as the only meaningful gimmick is rotating buff.
And then Moolah. Pay debt as frequent as possible and then NP away. The annoying part is when there’s matching face card, not enough critical star, or both. Or when the debt is about using NP damage boost when it’s on a support servant which means there’s no way to pay it back.
That said, Ozymandias is both tanky and high damage so everything worked out fine-ish. Oh and that comp above is a lie. Replace that Enkidu with a level 100 Cu which didn’t end up doing anything much.
MHXA! One of the more difficult quests. The strategy is kill as many snacks/enemies as possible as fast as possible. Except the one which causes debuff on death. Also save an NP or two for the Agar-agar. The side effect is the HP down to 1 and can’t even be buffed (I tried).
I use that as the point on which I need to break MHXA first bar as soon as possible. Afterwards it’s all the Cu’s turn to survive however many turns needed to get MHXA HP down to 1.
For Gilgamesh (Caster) finale, I went with this. I didn’t expect the NP def buff to be so thick it’s useless. So, yeah, I ended up just letting Ozy deal all the damages using face cards. That Nero Bride get full charge every time I killed anyone is also annoying. It doesn’t help I didn’t prepare for anything like that. So, yeah.
It didn’t even start well as killing Bunyan causes a full team debuff. Which then of course followed by Nero NP.
I wonder how I did it before. I also wonder if it’s better to just get rid of Nero first.
But hey, at least Qin saved the day getting rid the last few servants remaining (I think it was Nero and Gilgamesh).
With 2020 line up over, then it’s 2021. “Finale”. And this one is very annoying. That FGO Fandom Wiki not mentioning 1 time per turn evade buff from Fionn after first bar break is very much not helping. I ended up using two command spells because I just want to be over with this one already.
I’ll look back again and clear this proper if I have spare time.
I don’t remember how I cleared this in JP. I think it’s with Cu Alter. Or maybe Godjuna.
And lastly the Brave Eli quest. Yeah, I haven’t done the previous ones and jumped straight to this thinking it wouldn’t be too bad.
Except it was amazingly bad. I should’ve at least used Alexander or someone to remove the pierce buff etc in wave 5.
But anyway after few hours of trying I barely cleared it. Forgetting that her NP ignores def also didn’t help. I should’ve always went with NPAA in the final wave.
…and that’s it for now. There are still a few more challenge quests to be cleared.
Oh, I also rolled on the Berserker class banner hoping for more Lancelot or Herc or Cu Alter. I got none of them after 44 rolls and got Penth and Ibaraki instead. Great innit. Next year Grail Front will be slightly annoying.
As for the boxes, I’m at 68th box. I’m currently farming shop currency though so it slowed down quite a lot. I’m almost done with it though so I’ll be back farming lottery tickets soon. Or maybe the challenge quests first.
More new servants! Also the pickup banner. I rolled on Valkyrie banner and got one early on. I did some more but didn’t yield anything. There was just nothing afterwards. The total was 84.
I then did 12 rolls on Sekitoba banner but didn’t get him at all. Instead I got more Koyanskaya.
And lastly on Sitonai banner, I did 16 rolls. First I got even more Koyanskaya on 7th roll then decided to just roll on and thankfully got Sitonai on the 15th. 16th was the one paid roll thing – a second Sitonai would be nice.
Another banner came up on Wednesday. It’s Oberon banner. I rolled for him as 70% NP charge would be pretty convenient. Unfortunately I didn’t get him at all and ended up spending the remaining of my quartz. The total is 90 rolls so far. I still have plenty of paid quartz so I’ll be doing one roll a day. Hopefully he’ll eventually come up. I don’t think I’ll use any more quartz or tickets otherwise. I have 24 at the moment after clearing quests and there are a few more from interludes and strengthening quests.
The outlook for summer sure is rather grim.
Oh, along the way I got not-Kaleidoscope, Liangyu, a fifth Fairy Gawain, and a second Carmilla.
I also rolled friend point gacha a bunch of times and got Habetrot to NP4.
As for the main quest itself, most of them are relatively simple.
The exception is of course the Cernunnos quest. That one is quite difficult. From what I gather people either use Himiko for long term battle or one very high damage servant buffed to the max.
I initially tried the latter but my MHXX didn’t have enough damage and it was too reliant on card draws so I then tried the Himiko method.
It worked but it still took a lot of very careful planning to pull off. I can’t even imagine how to clear it with low rarity servants. Even with welfare servants thrown in. I’m looking forward to see how this guy do it. And maybe replicate it on NA in two years.
Apparently I forgot to mention it last week but I managed to clear Demeter memorial quest using low rarity servants.
The strategy is pretty simple, clear the first bar with Lu Bu and then finish the rest with Ushiwakamaru. Alexander is required to clear the stupid def buff and Hans is the usual support.
As for Kirschtaria, I don’t quite remember how I did it. I don’t think the front line ended up doing anything and got blasted off first turn.
I did need help from a support Castoria but otherwise I think it was just having Euryale shoot her NP as often as possible.
As planned, I rolled a bit on first day Bunnytoria/Okita/Lambda banner. I somehow got two Okita so I threw everything I have on that banner.
…and got jack shit. 155 rolls so far. I’ll do a bit more as I get tickets and quartz from daily login but otherwise I’ve spent everything I have. Including the tickets from clearing Prison Tower.
On the brighter side, I don’t have anything I really want until anniversary next year for Castoria. There’s also Kama right before it (or maybe afterwards due to anniversary date difference).
Back on the event, it’s mostly done and I’m now just finally spending the fever tickets for those QP.
Challenge quest was pretty easy as I went easy mode using solo Merlin. I’ve got him maxed and command coded and he cleared it without much difficulty.
The 50M QP quest on the other hand, ended up just taking a long time to finish.
Cu with event CE, Mash with def CE, and support Merlin with… Bella Lisa. Mine wasn’t maxed at this time so I had to borrow from support. This ended up stupidly simple as I only now realized that while they fire NP left and right, the damage isn’t that big. And as long Arjuna’s instant death isn’t triggered, it’s just a matter of looping Mash and Merlin’s NP. The last one took quite a long time because her class is Ruler. I should’ve equipped Mash with event CE as well.
Finally cleared the Morgan quest. Helped by this, I noticed Morgan is very likely to attack Castoria (and Mash to lesser extent). That made coming up with correct strategy way easier as I only need to protect Castoria.
MHXA Idol was chosen for her class. It slowed things down a lot though as her NP damage is relatively low and not arts so no buff from Castoria.
With that over, I’m back to farming mats. Octuplets this time around so I can finally max Sanzo.
Oh and I counted the boxes wrong. It was 143.6 boxes total.
Done with summer rerun! Well, almost. Still need to finish one more loop and a bit more of doujin power.
Challenge quest! I first tried with Arjuna Alter but he died a bit too early. So I’m back to Hokusai despite no arts buff. It took a while but it was mostly just letting Hokusai do her NP as frequent as possible. And a lot of taunts.
Summer 2020 is coming soon! Hopefully right after the rerun so it’ll be a lot of rolling fun next Sunday between NA Merlin and whatever JP 6th Anniversary will be.
Chaldea Boys Collection 2021 event has started. Phantom Thief Amakusa this time. Jing Ke also got buff for more damage against enemies with King trait.
The event itself is just usual event with no mission. The mats in store this time are all useful which is great.
I did some (50) rolls for Amakusa but got none. I did get the rate up SR though and a few event CEs.
Currently I’m at 23 SSR servant after 3008 rolls. That works out at 0.76% which is kinda low. I’ll see how low I can go.
Annoyingly for NA I haven’t finished the event. I made mistake farming wrong node for too long and ended up clearing the main quest very late. I’m catching up now with just few more quests remaining. I think there’s at least one higher difficulty quest remaining but I haven’t unlocked it.
Up next would be Mortiary event. No rolls planned here.
I cleared the event. Except the last CE drop and opening all the chocos (and gifts).
Had some… difficulty clearing the challenge quest so I stole this guy’s setup. Well, almost. I replaced Andersen with another Castoria so it’s quite a lot easier.
BB event has started. Fun ahead. I cleared one “fun” already though. King Protea fight sure is way easier with Jeanne and Merlin and Mash combo. I should’ve used plugsuit and swap in Jalter Summer instead of waiting for the def to be low enough and so I can crit damage to finish her in one turn.
And now I just need to slowly go through the main story…
Grinding for boxes. All the boxes. Only 15 boxes at the moment though. Mainly because most of the time was spent on NA instead of here.
I did finish the challenge quest though. Not with low rarity because I think there are plenty of people did it already anyway. The one up there is with friend Super Orion, with Amadeus and Waver equipped with 2030.
The other one on another account is double Castoria with Chloe as attacker. With Black Grail. I don’t think I put much thought on the other CEs.
Meanwhile CQ on NA is relatively easy as well. Not as easy but I did clear it in single run. Samba Santa is a bit too strong for this.
As for the boxes, I’m at 50th box. I wanted 100 but I guess it’s not happening considering only 1 day left.
Rather unexpected, Christmas event has started already.
When they announced new interludes last Monday I expected the Christmas event to be at least next Monday instead. But nope, it starts last Wednesday instead. Welp.
As I wrote before, it’s annoying because now I need to farm on both JP and NA. Well, not really “need” but it would be nice to farm as much as possible. I sure can use a lot of dusts and seeds. The fluids are nice bonus as well; last year’s Nightingale Santa wanted 45 to level up her skill to 9 and I don’t quite have enough.
Currently farming slowly because the currently open nodes have rather crap drop rate. It does look like I need to at least open some boxes though just to unlock the story.
I don’t think I’ll roll for this one. The one above is on my sub account.
Thankfully the event CE this time provides 50% when limit broken so that would help team comps a lot.
Also farming here. Also kind of waiting for the best node to open. I did get the extra event CE but I still need more. At least one more so I can limit break one and still have +3 on my own. The two other slots are occupied by NP charge CEs.
At least from the look of it my current farming team of Arash, Zerklot, Skadi, and Waver can go pretty far. Having full 3/3/3 node being the highest drop node sure helps. Gotta enjoy it while it lasts.
I ended up I rolling the banner for about 10 times and got nothing. I did get three R event CEs and that’s it. No Bradamante or anything.
Lol still nothing at all. Maybe Christmas event will finally start in two weeks or something. My guess on the earliest it may start is next Friday.
Apparently they fucked up drop rate during Thanksgiving banner and I got some SQ refunds and extra CE. That’s nice, I guess. There’s also fun bug of level 0 of the CEs they given away.
Samba Santa is coming next Monday. Nice timing because it’ll be before the JP one. I doubt there won’t be any overlap at all but at least I can have some dedicated days for NA. I especially need some dragon fangs. I mean, a lot of them. I don’t know if I can three turns the node but I hope Ereshkigal can help.
The Imaginary Scramble event is done. That sure took a while to finish. At least the currencies farming itself wasn’t too bad.
I didn’t have much time for challenge quest so I just go with easy route:
Not exactly easy at over 25 turns and wrong team composition (alter ego when most of the enemies are knights) but I did clear it in one attempt.
Up next is Lostbelt chapter 5.5. No idea if it’s time limited event or not.
There’s also 2.2M download except there’s no free SR this time. Welp. I hope they still do it sometime later (maybe on the new chapter release?).
Lostbelt chapter 3 has been released. As planned I got Waver to bond 11. Up next will be either Nitocris or Arash. Probably the latter but I generally prefer the former for farming because using Arash is kinda slow.
There’s also the Thanksgiving banner. I rolled for Ishtar 32 times but got that caster above instead. Not that I’m complaining because she’s quite a bit more useful for my team at the moment. Ishtar’s high damage is certainly nice but I also have Jannu summer which is while her damage is not quite as high, she’s still pretty good. The 40% NP charge is a bit lacking compared to Ishtar’s 50% but it should be workable. Hopefully.
Single target high damage caster with NP charge skill will certainly be useful in quite a few situations. I just need to gather enough skill stones and QP for her.
As for the new chapter itself, I don’t plan on doing it anytime soon. The earliest will be once the half AP daily quests campaign is ended which is in three days.
Still slowly going through the event. The story part seems pretty long. The challenge quest seems to be rather difficult according to people at AppMedia FGO wiki.
There’s nothing else otherwise. There’s no indication of free SR yet. Hopefully they still do it this year in addition to the free SSR earlier this year. Otherwise my Valkyrie is stuck at NP1 ;_;
As per screenshot above, I managed to get another Ereshkigal ( ﾟ ヮﾟ)
At NP2, she’s quite a bit more powerful. She’s especially useful for this account because I don’t have any Kaleidoscope or MLB Imaginary Magecraft (fourth one in the screenshot above).
My main goal was getting another Taiga beacuse I severely lack good single target lancer until next year’s Kagetora. I did get another one although I wished for at least two for NP3. But I got Ereshkigal instead so that’s even better in a different way.
My roll stats is now a bit weird. Hopefully I can still get my targets next year.
As for the event itself, I’ve almost done just need to do a bit more farming for the gold currency and the sand. The challenge quest was relatively easy brute-forced with Zerklot and double Skadi and finished by Okita. I sure wish my Zerklot is NP2 or higher. Or maybe MLB Black Grail.
Upcoming event is not an event but new main story. I’m not rolling anything here. Dreamfire, the max bond upgrade is very much welcome. I’ll need at least three at the moment for Waver, Arash, and Nitocris. Spartacus is also dangerously close to be maxed.
I only have enough rare prisms for one more dreamfire and the next free RP I can obtain (short of NP6 SR/SSR) will be quite a bit later in April. At least there will be a free one in January so that will do by then.
The new event has started. It’s got two new SSR servants; one of who has been waited for by lots of people.
I’m not interested in either so I’m not rolling.
The mechanic this time is rather interesting and thankfully simple. Although figuring out the most efficient way to reveal the map may take longer than I would like to so I ended up just opening whatever I feel like to.
As for the farming itself, thanks to me not having many event item bonus CE, I can just equip Imaginary Element to everyone and NP away. It’s already pretty much expected when they announced the damage bonus thing so that’s nice. The only rather annoying thing is at 75%, it’s not quite enough for some servants who only have 20% NP charge.
Free SR arrived. I said last week I may get Valkyrie. But after some (farming) considerations, I ended up getting Lancelot instead. As expected from the double Skadi system (second) main attacker, he’s plenty useful even at NP1.
Altera Santa Christmas rerun has started. It’s got Ereshkigal banner. Also simultaneously, event for FSN HF latest movie is also ongoing with Artoria banner.
I kinda wanted more Salter (NP3 would be nice) so I rolled the Artoria banner. The other SR in the banner, Heracles, is also useful so I figured it’s fine rolling that banner without waiting.
And then as per the image at the top of this post, I got the Artoria herself. Her raw damage is slightly lower compared to Salter (at the moment) but she’s got 30% NP charge which fits nicely with my complete lack of Kaleidoscope and MLB Imaginary Element. Leveling her up is very painful though so I’m thinking saving enough resources first until I can fully level her up at once. At worst she’ll probably be at least max ascended in next year anniversary with the new one-time special ascension function.
After getting getting her with 5 tickets, I felt like wasting some more tickets (total 10 to be precise) so I rolled Ereshkigal banner hoping for Taiga or Ana or event CE. Ereshkigal herself is also pretty useful with 50% NP charge so that would be a nice bonus.
First roll I got Nezha (now NP4) and the second roll I actually got Ereshkigal.
So, yeah, that was weird. Not that I’m complaining. Thankfully I’ve got almost enough materials to fully max her straight away. Just need about 10 mores stakes and a lot of QP. And exp cards as well because I currently have none after trying to max Lancelot last week.
With addition of those two SSRs, my summon rate is now almost in line with the advertised rate:
As I haven’t gotten my NP2 Valkyrie, my next roll will be next month’s banner… if it comes at all. I noticed there’s chance the WinFes banner may be skipped. Whoops. Oh well, there’s still next year’s anniversary banner. Actually looking at the lineup that one is better than the WinFes one.
With that, my next roll will be, hm, exactly that banner 😀
Or maybe Godjuna… if I feel like rolling. Maybe 10 rolls or something. Miyu would be nice too but NA is more about meta than eyecandy (except for Okita) and Miyu is not quite useful.
Christmas rerun finished. I did clear the store in the end.
The next event is apparently titled “Imaginary Scramble” and is supposed to happen after LB ch. 4 (India). And I haven’t finished reading that chapter. I probably really should before the event starts. Or something. Maybe I’ll catch up this weekend.
Interestingly the event gives bonus to a lot of summer servants because… sea. It’s almost like a second summer event. Or maybe that’s why this year’s summer is in the mountain. That’s a cool story.
The event itself will be most likely start next week. In the meantime they’re having some pre-event banner… event. The main servant here is You Kihi which is a rather interesting foreigner (and a very annoying one as enemy sometime back then). She’s also gotten buffed together with some other servants.
And the other servant in the banner is MHXX, Raikou summer, and Frankenstein summer. I did some random 22 rolls and gotten one MHXX. As I still had quite a lot of sq leftover I figured how hard can it be getting another MHXX or maybe Raikou if I’m lucky so I can NP2 at least either of them. Well it’s FGO with its crappy rate but at least I did get another MHXX so that’s nice. I’m not sure if I prefer her over Raikou in term of usefulness but she has NP charge skill and it’s always useful. Could be useful against high HP berserker… or saber. Her other skills seem okay and her NP being arts means it could be boosted nicely by Castoria.
Oh and I’ve gotten lots of Imaginary Magecraft CE. I didn’t get enough Imaginary Around though which kinda sucks.
12M downloads campaign has started. It includes the long-awaited Chaldea Teatime (because otherwise I have nothing for my caster CE).
Tickets are bought, fous are as well (though unused). Free SR is coming soon. I’ll probably pick Valkyrie for a nice NP2. Technically I should be getting either Herc or Zerklot. Or maybe even Astolfo. I’ll probably still get Valkyrie in the end.
Almost forgot but there’s also Cu Alter pickup… I wonder if I should roll or save for next year’s Jeanne summer and Okita summer and Merlin and even further Castoria. I also still kinda want Okita Alter and more Okita.
…considering the upcoming ones I may just skip this one. I can borrow one whenever needed anyway which is prett rare to begin with.
Christmas rerun done! …almost. Still need to do some farming and the extra quests.
I cleared challenge quest with team above since it seemed like an easy idea. And it sure was relatively easy. I think all I did was just spamming NP as many as I can. And thanks to two Castoria, they handled fending off enemy NPs.
Oniland done. I didn’t manage to get 100 aurora steels. I did get enough to final ascend Valkyrie and to max Skadi skills though. So that’s nice.
As for challenge quest, I used the team above. The method is simple, spam NP while protecting the attacker (Rider Kintoki) with Gudaguda Poster Girl. Oh, and Georgios of course.
Rider Kintoki sure is easily the best single target rider for pure firepower with his 50% NP charge, high NP charge rate, and two quick buffs.
Now I’m farming some feathers so I can max Jeanne Summer skills. Afterward it’ll be either more aurora steels or dragon fangs.
The Gudaguda event ended up giving lots of new expressions for Okita. Yay.
The raid was a bit surprising and got quite a few much needed fangs. Still not quite enough to max out Salter summer though. And as it’s the second most popular node, I didn’t have much else to farm so I ended up hitting random nodes both for event shop currency and some skill gems. Mainly caster skill gems. Didn’t get much though.
As predicted(?) last week, there’s also more building quests. I’ve already gotten enough materials so that was easy.
The challenge quest was rather interesting. I ended up borrowing a high damage lancer (Scathach) paired with Waver to defeat Nobukatsu. And then Okita in the back to finish off Nobbu.
And now instead of Halloween, we’re getting a Christmas rerun instead…? Where’s even Samba rerun.
So, um, yeah. It’s Nightingale Christmas. Apparently I didn’t do much last year. Not even remotely proper challenge quest clearance (I most likely used some command seals). The lottery box is limited to 10 this time as per usual rerun so there’s even less thing to do now.
Maybe I’ll try clearing the challenge quest proper this time.
Also did like 22 rolls for the Astolfo saber and got zilch. Not even SR/SSR event CE.
Oniland! Finally a single target caster. Although technically the role can be fulfilled by either Mech Eli or Jalter summer, a proper caster is sometimes useful especially for the half damage.
At any rate, going through the event rather quickly this time. By quickly I mean 5 turns farming because I use full event CE (hence quick) which means I need to fill up NP on the first wave. Now at 1.2M points I’m pretty close at maxing the damage and it sure is a lot of damage.
There will be raid coming soon so that will be fun. I don’t remember how it goes but it drops Aurora Steel. I need a lot of steels. Almost 100 of them. I hope I can collect enough from this single raid.
Then for some reason the dev thought it’s good idea to have hunting quest right after box gacha event.
Some were pretty useful like octuplets, aurora steel, chains, and spinal fluid. Especially the last one I need a lot of them.
That said, the immediate thing I need is actually dragon fang which didn’t make it this time. I need at least 177 of them because Salter summer takes that many for maxing her skills. I also need a lot of seeds.
Now I’m looking at it, I’m not sure why I’m farming for dusts and proofs.
New event later today. Most likely a rerun?
On unrelated note, I tried NP2-ing Okita on my sub account but she still hasn’t come after over 100 rolls. Combined with Castoria fail, it’s been over 350 rolls since my last SSR servant on that account.
Mech Eli rerun wheee.
As expected, farming is slow but at least it’s efficient? I’ve just finished all the missions and all that’s left is clearing the shop and challenge quest.
I wondered how I did challenge quest last time… and I didn’t. I haven’t finished Solomon at the time it seems.
I think I cleared it on my JP account using low rarity servants. It was probably the usual taunt team with Cu as main attacker.
Up next is Oniland. That one will provide my much-needed aurora steel. Apparently it’s got raid quest as well which should be hopefully relatively easy with Cu and Skadi.
The event is probably overall relatively easy as well considering I did it twice at simultaneously on both JP accounts in 2018.
I’m 10 boxes short from 100 boxes. I don’t think I’ll be able to hit 100. Oh well.
Next event is still not announced. Maybe Space Ishtar rerun? That may drive people crazy trying to get her to complement Castoria.
Lack of exhibition quest this time is still a bit unfortunate.
Third time exhibition quests for me means I’ve got quite some hang of it. Or just back record on how I cleared them.
For my own reference next year, here’s some details on how I did each of them.
The easiest one. Can be completed with solo Cu origin. Or solo Kagetora as I did last year.
Unfortunately I don’t really remember how I cleared this one. I think it was Nitocris, Mash, and Waver in the front? And then Georgios, Avicebron, and Cu Alter on the back? Maybe. Something around killing as many henchmen as possible with Nitocris NP.
Uh, here I introduce the taunt wall team.
This isn’t the exact team but it’s pretty close. I think. Maybe replace Georgios and Kintoki with Leonidas and Caster attacker or something. Or maybe it was Mech Eli? Anyone who can deal enough damage to assassin.
This used to be pretty difficult for me in JP. But that was with low rarity (+Okita, etc) restriction. There’s no such restriction here so the team similar to one in Izo is back. Now with Okita because lancer and berserker. In hindsight it’s good thing I brought her otherwise Cu can’t quite defeat Nobbu with his buster card and NP.
Surprisingly I cleared this in one go. The experience in JP paid off.
I think I failed this first time due to not paying attention to the gimmicks. Second run with Kintoki, Mash, and Merlin (I think?) allowed me to clear this one. Nothing much on strategy apart of just paying off all the loans and properly do it mainly for the attacker.
This one was fun. With idea from this video, I did it with my own spin.
The team is Skadi, Cu origin, and Cu alter on the front and Avicebron, Waver, and Cu caster (I think?). Plugsuit was employed so I can break the first bar on first turn. Gandr was used so I can properly get rid of that DX spriggan which grants MHXA buff removal on normal attacks.
That one costed Cu alter HP drop to 1. In the end all the arrow protections held up.
Looking again, I should’ve also tried getting rid of Sleepy Mochi which granted full recovery. That should reduce number of turns required. At 900k HP I’m not sure if it’s actually doable though.
So that team in Izo section is actually for this one. And it worked so well because of how Nero just keep spamming her NP every time someone is defeated. The strategy pretty much boils down to taunt all the time, maybe with flee/invulns. Billy and Nero are put off until last moment.
And that’s it!
The event has ended as well and my final box count is at 72. Not too bad but still not enough caster skill gems to bring everyone to at least skill level 4.
I managed to max up Okita, 8/8/8 Valkyrie, 6/10/7 Janne Summer, 1/6/10 Anastasia, and various other useful skill level ups. Due to lack of Aurora Steel I still can’t max up Skadi but I’ve got enough dusts remaining so all that’s left is just those steels. And lore. I only have one lore remaining.
As for level and ascensions, there are still lots of servants to be leveled up. I do have quite a lot of bones and proof of hero but I may have better use of them so I’m holding back spending them on random servants.
Lastly, it’s now Mech Eli rerun and 3T farming is rather difficult. At least clearing the missions should be easy now with all events CE maxed from the start.
Grinddddddd. Or something. But yeah, it’s grind time. I’m currently at around 70 boxes or something. I guess I’ll trying hitting 100 boxes by the end of this event.
The Grail Front thingy ended up still rather stupid. The AI is especially dumb.
I really need to finish the exhibition quests. I finished most of them but at least two still remains. Those aren’t especially difficult but it still takes time. Potentially a lot of them.
The grinding situation is a bit annoying with farming for gold currency being pretty difficult. I should be able to finish it by end of today and then full speed farming for the tickets. Currently at around 60 boxes, I’m not sure if I can hit 100 for this one.
Lottery box event is suddenly here. No challenge quest this time but we get this weird tactical game instead. I guess you could play it “proper” with multiple servants going together and buff each other and stuff but I learned that the easiest way is just to send off Heracles and let him do his thing. The third skill power up he has just gotten recently especially helped; allowing him to one-turn everyone.
The box themselves is, well, box farming as usual. Thankfully the last map also doubles as farming for all shop materials so I’ve been doing that and slowly clearing up the shop. I don’t even need any event CE other than the lottery bonus.
Lottery box here as well. I’m also slowly going through the challenge quests. I’m in way more better shape compared to last year so I should be able to clear everything… I think.
Unlike JP, there’s no good node to farm everything at once so I’m currently farming the bronze item first. Or just started after sticking around at the lottery ticket node non stop for the first few days.
Thanks to all the box items, my servant upgrades sure are going smoothly.
Finished challenge quest in lazy mode with help of friend Abigail summer. And Merlin (and Mash). It took 25 turns but could’ve been faster had I not been focusing too much on Bunyan.
It’s 21M download campaign after summer event and still ongoing until tomorrow. So I’ve been clearing strengthening quests and just farming hands. Not that I need many exp cards anymore so the extras will just become mana prisms.
Timing wise, Gil fest should be coming up next but there’s usually a rerun of something in between. The timing will be pretty difficult though. We’ll find out soon.
Finally cleared F/Z rerun. Farming the nodes were pretty annoying so I ended up not buying the monuments and pieces. I did clear the other mats though.
The challenge quest wasn’t the first for me but I’ve forgot the gimmick etc. I cleared it first run thanks to friend Cu Alter. First bar of both were pretty easy but it gets really annoying once the permanent and frequent def buffs for Diarmuid activates. I didn’t bring any buff clearer either so it got pretty slow at that point. Thankfully Cu Alter just rip through everything once he’s the remaining servant on the field.
Now I’m preparing for Gil fest… kind of. I think I need to at least bring Skadi skill 1 to level 10 for 10/7/10. And maybe Atalante’s skill 1 to 10 as well.
Now I wrote it, I realized I haven’t prepared anything for the exhibition quests. My overall lineup is better compared to my main JP and I’m not restricting anything for this account so it should be easier. I hope.
Still slowly going through the story. I’ve been a bit busy with other stuff so I’ve even been farming QP instead of event mats as I’ve cleared most of the shop.
Interestingly they released older Mashu summer costume in Rare Prism shop. I bought that as I’ve got quite a few extra RPs.
Otherwise nothing too exciting. I heard the challenge quest this time isn’t too difficult either. That should work out just fine for me as as I’ve mentioned above, I’m rather busy with other stuff at the moment.
It’s been half AP exp card farming week. Next week is Fate/Zero collab event rerun. It’s one of the older event and the CEs used aren’t of limited time. I’ve got some of them so farming shouldn’t be too bad.
I still don’t have Angra Mainyu though. I cleared up my friend points last week and got nothing.
I originally planned to roll for Waver on this event but I got him unexpectedly early few months ago so there’s nothing I really need at this event’s banner although Lancelot would be nice. But then again I don’t have Kaleidoscope so he won’t be as useful anyway and NP1 Lancelot can’t quite deal enough damages in some cases.
I’m still recovering from my roll for Salter summer (and Jannu summer) so my SQ situation isn’t exactly good at the moment anyway. The 10 ticket coming up soon is nice but I need to save for Okita (and Musashi) next summer. Oh, and Merlin.
It’s summer! It’s camping time! Or something. Now I think about it, first one wasn’t even really limited to sea but a whole island. Second one… I’m not even sure if there’s sea element at all. First part was like various places and second part was just prison area. Third one is the closest one being sea-themed but just like first one it was also a whole island which has mountain as well. And lastly last year was… Las Vegas. It’s fucking desert.
I guess they’ve never done exclusively sea-themed to begin with!
This one though is pretty much just mountain. It’s got lake but that’s about it.
Also it’s got Illya summer which I thankfully was able to get with limited amount of stones.
Still going slowly through the quests. Weirdly enough I’m almost done with the store even though I’m barely halfway through the story.
Meanwhile on my old account, I’ve been trying to get Castoria. A bit over 300 rolls and she hasn’t appeared at all ;_; Not only that, I haven’t even gotten any SSR servant at all. The probability for that to happen is 5% which is kinda ridiculous. There’s still one last day but I’m not holding my breath. I’ll just get over with it and try again next time =[
Meanwhile in NA, summer is over. I cleared the whole store just in time. Oh, I said I’m not rolling anything but that was a lie. I did end up rolling for Jeanne summer.
And unlike my old JP account, thankfully I got her in 23 rolls.
While she isn’t all that useful for now, she should be pretty useful once Castoria comes out… in two years…
And I still don’t have Lancelot. I haven’t gotten Kaleidoscope either. I can’t use my Skadi in full ;_; Considering I won’t pull for anything until next summer, this will be a rather annoying year. At least Skadi and Waver together make good NP charger.
Coming next (after the 11M download) would be Fate/Zero collab rerun. I still haven’t gotten Angra Mainyu…
5th anniversary events have started trickling in. The Memorial Quests so far are quite easy.
The strengthening quests are pretty interesting too with Phantom getting a long overdue buff. It’s almost copy-pasted from Alexander but almost better if not for only 90% maximum chance. It sure would be nice if they increase the rate as well but he’s got the debuff rate buff so maybe it’s fine. There’s nothing more to it though so his usefulness is still rather questionable.
Darius buff is pretty good one though. While not buff, buster def down for enemies is pretty close. This also brought him even further from Kiyohime who is already underpowered.
The last one from yesterday was David and he finally got his anti-giant damage boost. His skill set is already plenty good so this just makes him slightly more useful.
There’s only one low rarity servant buff remaining and I heard it’ll be more buff for Cu OG. That doesn’t sound quite right because he already has his NP buff and his skill set is pretty much overpowered. A buff for Cu proto instead would be welcome.
As for the rest higher rarity servants, I so far don’t have any of them, lol. I don’t usually use them either so I don’t know how much improvements they are. The Gubijin buff of buff removal resistance seems to be the most useful.
The CE banner is just weird so I’m skipping it.
Next update will probably be after their live stream on Monday. The timing is pretty annoying because while it’s holiday, it’s also the last long weekend day which means there isn’t much time to fully enjoy whatever updates they put out. Especially if they also start summer event simultaneously – then it’ll be a pretty big update to digest.
As I mentioned in a post earlier, I managed to get Salter summer during last day of her banner. That was nice. I also cleared the events barely on time.
Summer Fes has started and I mentioned earlier I don’t have spare gems/tickets at the moment so I only did single pull of Jeanne banner and got Fuuma. It was pretty much expected to miss.I wonder if I should try Dantes banner as well. Maybe I’ll do just one. Rolls as typing this… and the result is… Alexander. Ha ha ha 😐
Anyway! My current progress for the event itself is one sixth purely from the doujin power perspective. It should be pretty accurate. I don’t remember the most efficient way to clear this so for now I’m clearing the currency store first. I still need 1800 Gil dollars and over 3000 of the other two dollars. This will take a while but the event will be up for another two weeks. There should be enough time to clear everything.
Finished the event! I didn’t want to bother thinking for challenge quest so I cleared it with command seals.
I also got this rather useless servant to NP5. That sure is something. If only he appears on my NA account instead.
Current event won’t end until next week but apart of a bit of farming I’m mostly done with it. Will be back to farming green cubes, I guess.
Summer 2019 Rerun! Salter summer pickup! Chance for NP2! Except I didn’t get her. I did 180 rolls and the only SR or above servants I got were three copies of Helena summer. She’s pretty useful as I still don’t have Kaleidoscope but an actual Kaleidoscope sure would be nice. And Salter summer.
With that, I emptied my SQ and tickets. I guess I won’t be rolling for Edmond. Or Jannu summer. Or anyone. Until next year for Okita summer. Hopefully I will gather enough fund by then.
Meanwhile on the event itself, I’ve finished the main story and challenge quests. First part, as I mentioned last week, I used command seals but for the second part I finished it without. Shiki and Jannu sure can go a long way.
I’m still rather far behind on farming but the event is ending soon. It looks like I’ll be mostly farming for this event this weekend.
